TT1: Synthesis and structural characterization of copper nanoparticles by X-ray diffraction methods

Conveners: Dr. Marta Woźniak-Budych, Dr. Marcin Jarek, Nanobiomedical Centre, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan

Duration: 4 hr

Number of attendees (max): 3 / 1 group

Workshop description: This workshop aims to provide a comprehensive overview of metallic nanoparticles in terms of the synthesis, structural characterization, and applications. This workshop will provide some basic principles in the synthesis techniques and give workshop participants an opportunity for hands-on experience in performing the X-ray structural analysis of copper nanoparticles. The following topics will be covered:

  • introduction to metallic nanostructures and their characterization via X-ray diffraction technique;
  • fabrication of copper nanoparticles;
  • X-ray structural characterization of synthesized copper nanoparticles;
  • application of copper nanomaterials.

TT6: Chemical Vapour Deposition synthesis of carbon nanostructures and their characterization via High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy

Conveners: Dr. Barbara Maciejewska, Dr. Grzegorz Nowaczyk, Nanobiomedical Centre, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan

Duration: 4 hr

Number of attendees (max): 5 / 1 group

Workshop description: This workshop will involve both, the synthesis of carbon nanostructures (via Chemical Vapour Deposiotion – CVD) and nanomaterial characterization by means of HRTEM. The main concepts of carbon nanotubes and graphene growth via CVD will be discussed and simple synthesis will be carried out. Obtained material will be examined by High Resolution Transmission Electron Microscopy to verify morphology of CNTs as well as Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy in order to get data about their chemical composition.
